Nowadays, we can easily hop on a plane, and go from America to Europe, from America to Asia, to Africa, or from Europe to Africa. And all other sorts of flights around the world.

But it wasn’t always like that. There was a time when flying on an airplane was a luxury not many could afford. Nowadays, commercial flights are a commodity we enjoy and reap the benefits.

With that in mind, this documentary lists the history of commercial flights. How did we get here? What were the inventions necessary for commercial flights to be so available, affordable, and useful for everyone?

It took a lot of time, but we finally are at a point where commercial flights and jets are something most of us can afford and enjoy. Nowadays, science is trying to find a way to make the flying faster. But as history has shown us, humanity has a way of achieving great things.
